  • My son dropped while breech and his little butt engaged into my pelvis instead of his head. I had a C-Section b/c they couldn't turn him.

  • It's possible, but unlikely depending on how far along you are. My son was breech and never even dropped. Well, actually, he was transverse (sideways) and stayed that way.

  • depends on how far along you ds was breech until 35 weeks, thankfully he turned right at 36 (2 days before i had him) and i didn't have to get a c-section

  • Actually, its amazing what point you can be at before baby flips. You can be in labor and have baby flip. Just remember that breech is a variation of normal and is not a need for surgery.

  • Babies can flip even *in* labor~~
    The uterus can actually coax baby around!
    (*This is why scheduling a cesarean for breech can be unnecessary.)

    If your baby is breech you might look for Moxibustion, Webster,, etc...

  • Yes totally possible. Try getting on your hands and knees for a while, your uterus will have more room that way. No surgery needed. GL with your Birth!!!
